4:16 pm
right now donald trump. you just heard him he went to iowa. he ripped president obama and blasted more than one potential g.o.p. presidential candidate. donald trump joins us. good evening, donald. >> hello greta. >> well, two big verbal punches, one to governor romney and one to governor bush and governor romney you said he is not a closer. >> he is not a closer. he was not able to close the deal he should have been able to. we had a president that was doing terribly. as bad as you are going to do. he should have won and many republicans would have won and he was not able to close the deal. and certainly the republicans cannot be so stupid as to give him a second crack because honestly he choked. owasn't able to get it done
4:17 pm
he should have been able to get it done. there is no excuse for it you cannot give that person a second chance unfortunately. >> all right. governor bush you criticized him and said we don't need another bush. in all fairness he should not get extra credit for beating bush but he should also not lose some credit for being a bush. he should be measured by himself. >> it's a huge negative of the. the bush name is not exactly hot right now. i think it's a very very big negative. is he very weak on immigration. he is for common core which is a republican i can tell i is not a positive thing he think he wouldn't get elected. i don't think he would beat hillary or whoever it may be. >> all right. you describe president obama as either grossly income fenton or has completely different agenda than you want to hear about. what do you mean by completely different agenda? what's he got that we don't want to hear about? >> well, he wants to change us around to a different system than what we are supposed to be in this country, he wants to go very different route. and i said that very strongly and i got as you
4:18 pm
know more standing ovations by far than anybody else and that was one of them. >> what's the different. >> he is either grossly incompetent or he wants to go in a different situation. he wants to give away the free ernesto surprise system. he wants to have a system that does not measure well with what we are about. and certainly what the republicans are all about. >> are you saying he is anti-capitalism? is that sort of code for that? >> socialism and anti-capitalism and lots of other things yes. >> all right. and you also said in an interview to breitbart, i can make america great again and you also said that i are seriously considering about running what the odds. >> i am seriously considering it. i could make america great again we have tremendous potential. not using it. politicians are all talk no action i have been watching them for years. i was doing well last anytime. i could have done something. in a way i have a regret, i did what i are to do when i backed mitt and mitt let us
4:19 pm
down and that was very unfortunate. but i can tell you this we have tremendous potential as a country we don't use it. we are falling behind. china is now the one -- the number one economic engine economic country which is unthinkable if you go back 10 years. unthinkable that a thing like that could happen and again, we have the ability in this country to it truly be a great one again. right now we are falling so far behind. >> donald, how you can walk away from your businesses and i looked at the numbers from miss universe last night. i know how the apprentice is doing. could you really walk away from all of that to run for the '. >> i would be willing to do it the apprentice doing well. miss universe last night you saw nielsen ratings they were through the roof and all of that. obviously the country is far more important. and i can do things that other people can't do. i can do things that the other republicans candidate and frankly the democratic
4:20 pm
candidates can't do. one of the things we have to do is stop with this tremendous flow of people just walking right into the country we don't know who they are, where they come from. they just walk right across our southern border and who builds a better wall than donald trump? i build the best buildings, walls are easy. believe me i would build a wall that is not penetrable. that would be a wall that they are not going to be stepping over. and we he have to do that we have to stop this influx because it's killing our country. >> donald, thank you. and i hope you come back and i hope you come here when you make up your mind whether you are going to run or not. thank you, donald. >> thank you very much. >> and another blockbuster weekend they box office for "american sniper." >> chief. >> yes, sir. >> my name is mavs. we met in fallujah. you saved my life. >> i did? >> yes, sir. >> we were stuck in a house until you came in with the the first marines. you were the one that carried me out. >> but the film also taking
4:21 pm
another round of fire from liberal director michael moore. moore posting tweets, you tell me is moore dishonoring american soldiers? take a look at director moore's tweets. first, tomorrow's sunday school one what would jesus do? oh, i know what he would do is hide on top of a roof and shoot people in the back. and then sunday school two. but what would jesus do if he could be a sniper and save soldier's lives by shooting savages in the back? joining us army veteran and former congressman allen west. good evening, sir. >> good evening, how are you doing, greta? >> i'm very well. i noticed that you have seen "american sniper" twice. you must have a strong view on this. >> yes, i do. i think when you look at the progressive left. they spent a lot of time and a lot of resources really demonizing the iraq combat field of operations. what "american sniper" does is it brings that 25-meter urban combat operation into the lives of the american people and you get a chance to see it but even more so
4:22 pm
it humanizes the warriors that were there on the ground fighting. and biggest thing that seems to be causing the left consternation is the acclaim that movie has gotten six academy award nominations but also the success it has had at the box office. when you look at a lot of the left's movies that they put out about iraq or even afghanistan or even going back to desert storm, they did not do well. >> i almost think that michael moore was just being a little bit i don't know if it's emotional or dopey. evidence tweets that his uncle was killed by a sniper in world world war ii. oftentimes people take to twitter and say things that are just sort of dopey. it is consistent with his views on the war and everything. he just might have been a lot better off not tweeting about all of this. don't you think? you are absolutely right. not just michael moore but you saw matt taibbi of "rolling stone" the thing that he said. also the comment from howard dean that basically said
4:23 pm
anyone going to see "american sniper" they have anger management problems. i guess. on the left they embrace on the boberg dal. look at the fact the comments that susan rice made on the sunday talk show. serve honorably with honor and distinction. you know, i don't remember the obama administration sending anyone to the memorial service with chris kyle to years ago 2013. somehow they found a way to send three members of the obama administration to michael browne's funeral in st. louis. >> well, let me take you to another topic joint chiefs of staff martin dempsey is sponsoring an essay competition to honor the saudi king who just died and i confess i think an essay contest is a little weird for the general joint chiefs but you tell me what do you think? >> well, i think that it is
4:24 pm
bad policy coming out of the department of defense. the chairman of the joint military capability and capacity. i'm glad to see that kurds along with the american air power has somewhat pushed isis back from strong hold or attack positions around kobani, we need to be talking about building up that capacity and capability to once again possibly go back on the battlefield and defeat and destroy isis as well as al qaeda. and when you look at the kingdom of saudi arabia, i don't think that they have many policies that we should be i guess touting or providing al co-ladies for. >> >> women can't even drive there. >> >> congressman, thank you, sir. >> straight ahead just six days into the super bowl there is a new explosive twist in the deflate gate investigation. plus, former nfl star hall of famer and heisman trophy winner tony door set.

4:29 pm
>> also tonight a new twist in the deflated gate investigation. fox d drmplet sports director scott smith joins us. good evening, scott, what's the new twist in this? what's the new development? >> greta, fox news sports locker room room attendant captured on video taking the balls from the official's locker room on game day in the afc championship game and bringing them to know location, another room for a moment before then taking them out to the field for pregame. so that is where many people are saying that could -- that could indeed be where this all took place that 11 of the 12 balls and psi was let out of those balls from this equipment manager on the way out to the field. of course there is no evidence that necessarily shows that at this point in the nfl's investigation. but they are kind of circling this equipment manager or this locker room attendant for the patriots and we know that tom brady came out in that radio interview this morning in that boston radio station and he was asked that quite
4:30 pm
clearly, did you ever order an equipment guy any locker room attendant, anybody with the patriots staff to do anything to alter the air pressure in those balls and he came out and said absolutely not. so, this surveillance video shows that this was the last person to have the ball before these balls exited out on the field and he, of course now is in in the cross hairs. >> how aggressive is the nfl even pursuing this? it seemed like a pretty easy thing. it's now been about 8 days. they could easily go talk to this equipment manager. the nfl dragging its feet. it wasn't aggressive in some of its other past investigations. >> right. they didn't even talk to tom brady yet the guy at the center of this whole supposed conspiracy. they haven't even talked to tom brady about it yet. many could suggest that maybe they allow him to focus on the super bowl and come back and circle the wagons and put a button on this investigation. they haven't spoken with him yet. many have suggested it's going to be after the super bowl before we hear of anything.
4:31 pm
richard sherman, the corner back for the seattle seahawks coming out today and saying the problem with this whole thing bob craft the owner of the patriots is little too cozy with commissioner roger goodell and there could be a conflict of interest there and is he not able to levy objective penalty at this point before the super bowl because of that. >> well, i don't know if richard sherman is right that it's too coziy. i think richard sherman is right they can move a whole last faster and get the investigation it sure looks to me they are dragging their feet. i could have gotten the answer earlier than now. scott, thank you. >> you got it, thanks, greta. >> no matter what tom brady says the star quarterback taking heat from well just about everyone. >> i feel like i have always played within the rules. i would never do anything to break the rules. >> you are the one guy that touches the ball constantly. >> live from new york, it's saturday night. >> tom, i think you are pretending to know a lot less than you whale do. >> what? [ laughter ] >> i don't believe there is equipment manager in the nfl
4:32 pm
that would on his own initiative deflate a ball without the starting quarterback's approval. >> i didn't alter the balls in any way. >> if it indeed happened, i believe it's something that's been going on for a long period of time. >> things are going to be fine. this isn't isis this isn't you know, no one is dying. >> and joining us four time pro-bowler, super bowl champ hall of famer, heisman trophy winner and former nfl running back for the dallas cowboys and denver bronchos tony door set. nice to have you with us. >> it's good to be on your show. >> what do you think about this deflate gate? this fuss over this football >> well, you know, there is rules in professional football. if someone has broken the rule then obviously you have done something wrong. you know as they always say you do the crime you have got it do the time. the thing is i have never really paid tension to the
4:33 pm
football. thats watt least of my worries was the weight or the size of the football. >> and what i don't understand i i mean maybe you can explain this to me. patriots have their 12 footballs and i take it that the columns would have had their own 12 footballs, shouldn't they look at their football to see if they are deflated to see whether or not it could have been some outside influence that's been suggested at least by the patriots? be if there. >> well, yeah, i mean there is a lot of things options that they could take but the things about this is you still got to go out and block and tackle. you have got to catch footballs, and then that to me was probably what woo probably be again the least of my worries is the size of the football you know if you prepare yourself properly you got a good game plan, you everything should fall in place for you but just worrying about the football itself, i just think it's very minute. >> if the ball was deflated, and if it gave the patriots
4:34 pm
an advantage, more control over their football. when it was felony for instance, or caught for instance. is that cheating in your minds and if so, what should be the consequence? >> >> well, there is rules and there is regulations. and if you break the rules, obviously you need to be punished. the integrity of the game is very important. so, if you are going to go out and do some deliberately do something that's wrong, and you get caught, then you should be fined. you should be suspended. or the combination of both. but obviously there should be some punishment dealt your way. >> how about having the patriots. [phone ringing] >> i think that's for you. [ laughter ] >> how about the patriots forfeiting the game and having the colts in the super bowl? >> the thing about it is this the way that game ended and the beat down that they
4:35 pm
took, i don't think the football the way that the football had had very much to do with that i think it was the talented on the football field that was eventually, was the difference between those two football teams. so i don't think there should be someone if there is someone deliberate rattedly did these this allegations and obviously somebody needs to be punished but the way that the patriots handled their business on the football field indianapolis had no -- they had no -- they got a good thorough beating and i don't think those guys are complaining about the football. >> one last question. this weekend, seattle or patriots what's the score going to be? wow, you know, i really like both of these teams offense. it's going to be pretty hard -- i can't count tom brady out. so i want to say it's going to be about 30 to 25. >> all right. 30 to 25, all right.
4:36 pm
loved watching you play tony except for when you played against my packers otherwise, i like to watch you play. >> well, it's a good thing we didn't play them very often. >> indeed. >> thank you for joining us. thanks for joining us. that's been my pleasure. and straight ahead, new information about the al qaeda operative released early from a u.s. prison. was he almost swapped for an american couple held in cut tar? that's next. staying on top of the breaking news. monster thunderstorm pummeling the northeast and across the country. trackingth blizzard and more live team coverage coming up. tweet us your photos. here is pictures you have already sent us.
